Britain says to continue enforcing Libya no-fly zone

March 20, 2011 23:07

LONDON - Britain said on Sunday it would continue to enforce a U.N.-mandated no-fly zone over Libya and questioned whether Muammar Gaddafi would honor his latest ceasefire.

"Everyone will recall that in recent days Colonel Gaddafi declared a ceasefire which was promptly violated," a spokesman for the office of Prime Minister David Cameron said in an emailed statement.

"We said then we would judge him on his actions not his words -- and we will do so again.

"His obligations are very clearly set out by the UN Security Council Resolution. Our assessment is that he is in breach of these obligations so we will continue to enforce the resolution."
